Here is a red swinging butler door from the kitchen into the pantry space in this energy retro-fitted heritage home. This door swings both ways for easy traveling while hands are full.

Quarter Sawn White Oak kitchen with Arts and Crafts or Craftsman details but is a Neo style with big dentils. The stiles of the doors are thicker than the rails. Dog Gates retract into the island and when extended the keep the dogs from the rest of the house. Photos by Henri Georgi
The homeowners were able to preserve the mid-century character of their kitchen by re-finishing the existing cabinets. New stainless steel appliances and a fresh coat of white paint revive the space. A custom built bench and custom table offer a gathering spot in the efficient galley layout.
This picture is of a built in buffet storage cabinet, known as a butler's pantry back in the days when this home was built. It serves as a great place to store the batteries, flashlights, tape, ruler etc. and always know where they are.
New kitchen is divided from the dining room by custom cabinets with pull-outs. Custom island is designed for baking. Arts and crafts side board and buffet serves as storage for stemware, silver, and china. Photo by David Huisman Design
